This part of the website is provided to assist volunteer brigade members to access further training opportunities to enhance and keep current their skills at a peak. After being accepted as a volunteer and completing the basic (BF) training course there are regular formal courses available both at a District level and at a State level for members to advance their skills. The relevant information is provided in the links below. Also the RFS provide extensive information on broader training levels and relationships at this link.
Our brigade also runs regular short training sessions to keep existing members up-to-speed with equipment and other activities as well as developing a well drilled cohesive team response. Topics covered include operating pumps and hoses, fire-truck and equipment familiarisation, structural fires, first aid and radio communications. We discuss recent fires we attended, prepare for hazard reductions, plan community education, maintain equipment and of course, socialising.
A vitally critical aspect of training is getting to know the brigade area and the different fire fighting services available in different parts of the brigade area - so you will regularly see the red trucks and yellow uniforms around your locality - that way we can respond without hesitation.
Our brigade also assists adjoining bridages and other agencies in times of critical responses and we often participate in joint exercises to sharpen our skills in responding to their needs.
These training sessions are held every 2nd and 4th Tuesday evening commencing at 6PM - you are welcome to come along and meet brigade members.
If, as a brigade member, you want to submit a training nomination application you can download this word version of the nomination form and give it to the Brigade Training Officer.
